from a new center here in moscow this is with the online on the screen twenty four hours a day the un security council is holding an emergency meeting after north korea carried out a third nuclear test in defiance of international sanctions russia is among those to condemn the move which pyongyang says was in response to outrageous u.s. hostility details now from auntie's in the. so far strong words from foreign minister sergei lavrov concerning this task by north korea urging the u.n. security council to respond immediately however at the same time warning that caution needs to be taken and escalation needs to be prevented we do this that i would like to stress that north korea's nuclear test deserves condemnations we hold the move will not be used as a pretext to build up a military presence around the korean peninsula lost we believe that flexing military muscles in the region is extremely dangerous this as north korea is
threatening further measures the reclusive state of saying this is only the beginning the first of several responses to what they call outrageous hostility coming from washington now the main concern is that this puts north korea one step closer to building a nuclear warhead small enough to mount on a not long range missile capable of reaching the united states and so we're seeing and will continue to see strong reaction in the international community you have contras why russia pushing for dialogue and diplomacy and then partners in the west pushing for strong action what is the right way it's not for me certainly to answer it's a question that's on many people's mind is how do we go further and actually get something done this is a longstanding issue today's news of course was. to. get
you to. egypt opposition is turning more radical as protests become increasingly violent and then of course movement of most men calling themselves the black bloc is attracting more supporters it's threatening is the most authorities and sparking fears of a possible all out street war bill true as in current tells us about the group which has given all of the exclusive access. this mysterious group appeared round the second anniversary of generosity five evolution when they released this statement saying they would fight the missing brotherhood and they would strive for the goals of revolution around about the time we started seeing a young man in black but a car this according themselves said the black bloc and they were heading up the
moment it's signs of the revolution we saw them making want to talk to my facebook pages they were giving instructions for street fighting it taking responsibility for a number of the acts of civil disobedience such as stopping public transport and also have said they were responsible for the burning of muslim brotherhood headquarters of some of them this of course has sparked much criticism from the authorities including the missing brotherhood and that the t.v. channels the prosecutor general intention of january i said they were terrorists carry on that they would be arrested if they were caught red handed our team managed to secure interviews with this members of the secret organization the black bloc is an idea that came about as a reaction to the negligence of our peaceful demands and also as a reaction against the oppression of the interior ministry which received orders from the regime we stand against the oppressive and tyrant regime we call upon the interior ministry to deliver justice for those who have been killed and we will continue our demands until they are met our actions are in self-defense we are
protecting ourselves but have never attacked anyone we will always be present in egypt even after or demands are met however we will take on a different form the aim behind our presence is to prevent injustice in any form no one listens to our demands and the proof is the number of people who are being killed of course we have marches to maka this stepping down of the ouster of hosni mubarak this of course devolved into clashes by the presidential palace much take us was thrown up protest as he responded with molotov the similar protests occurred around the country down south in the suit and now we had reports including egypt's second city in alexandria although the focus of the consciousness definitely is most weeks by the presidential palace an indication that the protest is attending to more violent means to push the regime to fill the demands. under the new egyptian constitution the black bloc is considered a violent group ramsey brute and author who writes extensively about the middle
east thinks organizations like this sprout up because the country is so polarized for the last two years egypt has not been allowed to have a strong central government that is keeble or pushing the political process forward and thus the economy of the country the social cohesion and everything else as a result you have this is huge vacuum and this polarization and that is allowing egyptian society to be open for exploitation what has been happening is not exactly a popular of unified popular uproar against the addictive nature but rather a political polarization that has swept through the country for the last two years reaching the point of both sides justifying violence against one another and as it is you have these this increasing number of casualties some of it indeed due to
police brutality and there is a possibility that in fact that the are outside those who are trying to further fuel the. taking over egypt at least in the urban centers from cairo to boresight it's a phenomenon that i think resulted from the frustration disenfranchisement and just the general feeling of betrayal that the youth of egypt are feeling right now the issue is not the black bloc in particular but why would the even appeal to the youth of egypt in the first place unless there was that vacuum and there was that the need that was it created by the lack of sensuality and the lack of confidence in the political process in egypt with her coming from the government or from the so-called opposition. still ahead in the program a magnet for migrants the u.k. is attracting more than any other european countries according to the latest statistics it's a multicultural. white british are becoming

that the people living here are worried about the speed and the size of the influx . for my opinion i don't think you. need more immigrants over the moment. critics say the government is too frightened to address what britain will look like in fifty years time it's going to look like. it's going to be a complete population. the indigenous population is shrinking anyway the younger generation and the younger generation is becoming increasingly radicalized and i think it's probably. twenty twenty five twenty possibly demographers say that if immigration continues on a similar scale the white british population throughout the country will become a minority after twenty sixty six but with less than half of londoners already

russians are a common general durance and declared that if invaded by russia sweden wouldn't be able to last a week against the onslaught therefore sweden must immediately join nato he said that currently it is not quite possible to invade sweden but due to the two thousand and eight war with georgia it is possible for russia to somehow push through established european borders bring their forces up to sweden's gates putting the generals country in danger but guess what according to your own council of the european union georgia started the war so by that logic if the two thousand and one with georgia is the example of the future then don't kill russian peacekeeping troops and.
